Take Cover

Eight sunscreens you can trust under the sun.


Superficially, whose beach tote wouldn’t benefit from having this chic tube in it? For practical purposes, its formidable SPF protects in a nice, non-greasy, lightly scented way.


A favorite among derms, this is a trusted sunscreen for even the most active, whether in sand or water.


No need to apply sparingly for fear of breaking out with this light lotion, which is oil-free and fragrance-free.


The ease of this applicator rocks. I like to spray my shoulders with this before heading out to garden.


I wore this on a bike ride over the weekend and neither sun nor sweat affected how well this worked.


Walk to work? Eat lunch al fresco? This matte formula is light enough to live nicely under makeup and impart a nice, smooth finish.


Chemical and preservative-free, with plankton and organic beeswax to boost the SPF, this formula’s gentle enough for the little tykes.


Purists and minimalists alike will love this two-fer product. Both a tinted moisturizer (for cosmetic coverage) as well as a sturdy sunscreen (for REAL coverage), its consistency is as natural feeling as its shake-it formulation.
